New Head-Fier
May 7, 2013
Hi all,
I'm looking to get myself some new headphones.  These will be my first pair of dedicated, portable headphones, so they need to be closed.  Currently I am using the CX 300-II IEM and they're showing their age.  I listen to a wide variety of music such as house, electronic, classical, rock, etc.  I would like something with a wide soundstage and balanced lows/mids/highs.  I want a pair with present mids but have good bass when needed.  I have been considering the ATH-M50s and Shure SRH840s, but from what I am reading, the m50s aren't the best for classical music.  I'm open to other suggestions beyond these.  I would prefer not to spend over $200.
